From Huffington Post in November 2010, it’s now okay for governments to kill gay people. So basically they’re saying, ‘Hi Hitler, you were wrong to kill Jews but yes you were right to kill all gay people!’
Last week, the Third Committee of the United Nations General Assembly voted on a special resolution addressing extrajudicial, arbitrary and summary executions. The resolution affirms the duties of member countries to protect the right to life of all people with a special emphasis on a call to investigate killings based on discriminatory grounds. The resolution highlights particular groups historically subject to executions including street children, human rights defenders, members of ethnic, religious, and linguistic minority communities, and, for the past 10 years, the resolution has included sexual orientation as a basis on which some individuals are targeted for death.
The tiny West African nation of Benin (on behalf of the UN’s African Group) proposed an amendment to strike sexual minorities from the resolution. The amendment was adopted with 79 votes in favor, 70 against, 17 abstentions and 26 absent.
And now Singapore, who well, I know aren’t supportive of gay rights at all, our law is like ‘against the law but let’s live and let live’ (fucking stupid btw) ABSTAINED. Fucking abstained. Useless piece of shit vote.
I guess it makes us slightly better than countries who voted no, (or worse because then we’re one of those too chicken shit to make their point) but that is not even a comparison because how can it be okay to kill peope discriminately for being gay!?
